A French Roman Catholic priest was shot to death in southeastern Brazil, apparently while trying to resist a holdup, police said Monday. Father Gabriel Mayra's body was found Saturday slumped over the wheel of his car with a .32-caliber bullet in his heart, police radio operator Edson Andrade said by telephone from Vitoria, 310 miles northeast of Rio.

Horacio Santos, a 42-year-old nuclear engineer, had already been robbed 13 or 14 times, his family and friends say. When it happened yet again, he cracked--and a national uproar ensued. At about 11 a.m. on June 16, Santos heard his car alarm go off while he was shopping near his home. He ran into the street to find two men stealing his car stereo. As they fled in an old Chevrolet, Santos leaped into his Renault Fuego and gave chase. A few blocks away, he overtook and halted the thieves.

Police in Brazil on Friday arrested four men and recovered nearly all of the $8 million stolen last month from a Brink's international shipment en route from New York to Argentina.

Police did not say exactly how much of the $8 million was recovered.
